USFF Systems for Computing and Networking Onboard eVTOL Aircraft
Multiple eVTOL aircraft developers from America and Europe have come to Curtiss-Wright seeking rugged COTS hardware to be used for prototyping as they develop their new aircraft platforms for production.
Flexible I/O System Design Reduced Cost, SWaP, and Time
A leading prime contractor of airborne imaging systems came to Curtiss-Wright with a 3U OpenVPX system architecture design problem they were doubtful could be solved, given the project’s constraints.
Modified COTS Solution Extends Platform Lifespan and Mission Capabilities
Aerospace integrators are often called upon to upgrade aging airframes with new electronic payloads to extend their lifespan and mission capabilities.
USFF Mission Processors and Network Switches for ISR UAV Targeting System
As unmanned vehicles become more powerful and complex, their electronics payloads must adapt to match new mission objectives. This often forces aerospace and defense system integrators to push for reductions in size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).
Use Case: Advanced Tactical Data Link Gateway for the Modern Warfighter
TCG HUNTR software installed on a Parvus DuraCOR 8043 mission computer, displayed on a GVDU mission display, provides operators with a rugged, small form factor solution that can be used on the battlefield with minimal training and almost no expertise.
Solving Display Computer Thermal Challenges in a Jet Trainer Aircraft
This case study examines the problem of needing a graphics display computer for a space-constrained jet trainer aircraft with limited onboard space and no room to support a fan-cooled system.
Upgrading an Electronic Warfare Suite with an Integrated System Solution
A global helicopter manufacturer, faced with a need to upgrade an existing EW suite to increase functionality, sought high-performance technology with a reputable pedigree that they could offer to their growing customer base.
Pre-integrated, Rugged COTS Computers Reduce AEW&C Program Costs and Time to Market
When 30-year-old airborne surveillance and control equipment mounted on the underside of an aging helicopter required replacement, the manufacturer needed a partner they could rely on to provide mission-critical processing technology in harsh environments.
Rugged Recording and Mission Computing on a Tactical Fighter Aircraft
Tactical Air Support, Inc. needed a cockpit accessible rugged data recorder and a pre-integrated mission computer to upgrade its fleet of F-5AT Tiger II Military supersonic tactical fighters. Read about the solution Curtiss-Wright developed here.
Upgrading UAV Automatic Landing Subsystems while Reducing Cost and SWaP
A customer wished to move to the latest and greatest technology without having to change pinouts or cables on the aircraft.
AWACS Network Upgrade using Modified COTS Helps Shorten Delivery
An aircraft fleet was undergoing an upgrade of the on-board AEW&C network, they contacted Curtiss-Wright to find a cost-effective yet rugged, quick turnaround solution for multiple processing and communications subsystems.
Driving Forward the Development of Next Generation UUVs
A system integrator required small form factor (SFF) mission processors, network switches, and network-attached storage (NAS) with government-approved encryption for UUV operations. Read about the solution we developed here.
